Update: Satellite Decision. XM or SIRIUS?





In a word: XM. (or in 2 letters)

With a whopping 1.2 million subscribers, XM leads SIRIUS by 600%. I'm not sure that actually means anything except that XM broke into the market first. For me, NASCAR pushed XM over the edge. A channel dedicated to 24 hour NASCAR racing with a second channel dedicated to in-car audio. (Sirius will have NASCAR in 2007)

I am a Howard Stern fan, but was reminded that Opie & Anthony are on XM.

Driving from Easton to Reading every day and being in the car most of the day, satellite radio was a matter of who, not a matter of if.

-Satellite boy, out.
